After a successful debut in 2019, Hip-Hop Week MKE returns to Milwaukee this week with an even fuller lineup of rap concerts, tributes and seminars. “Hip-Hop Week MKE for 2019 will feature a celebration of old and new school hip-hop culture during the week of Aug. 19-25, all with a focus on how hip-hop has the power to transform communities through the lens of financial literacy, health/wellness and civic engagement,” according to the organizers.

If you missed it, you can catch Tap’d In’s preview of this week’s events, and you can find the complete schedule for Hip-Hope Week MKE below. The event is also your chance to catch a special live bonus episode of Radio Milwaukee’s podcast Backspin on Wednesday, Aug. 21.

Looking for more Milwaukee rap coverage?

We’ve got it. In anticipation of Hip-Hop Week MKE, earlier this month we shared our picks for the 10 most important rap songs in Milwaukee history. In our previous Milwaukee Rap Roundup, we covered recent videos from Destinee Lynn, Spanish Rice, Spidey Mayweather, 54 Baby Trey and Mari Boy Mula Mar and more. We also shared new videos from Mudy, Rockz and Zed Kenzo. And if you missed it, we previewed this week’s Hip-Hop Week MKE lineup on the latest episode of Tap’d In.
